The food is the best part of a cruise. You can eat all day if you want. On Celebrity Apex, you’re assigned one of four main dining rooms – Cosmopolitan, Tuscan, Normandie or Cyprus. Each one has some specialty dining items. You have to make a reservation to switch and inform your waiter. The menu has a number of regular dishes and only a small selection of new items each evening. We did not like this lack of variation. It was more fun when you stay in the same dining room and get a different themed menu each night. Specialty dining cost $60+ to eat dinner in the steakhouse, sushi restaurant, raw bar seafood place, Bistro, and others. We ate breakfast and lunch at the Oceanview Cafe. You could also get burgers, hot dogs, turkey burgers and fries at the Mast Grill between the Solarium and outdoor pool. This site had soft cream as well. You could get regular ice cream at a station in the buffet and also pizza at the rear. Lighter options were available at the Eden and Spa cafés. Here are some of the different dining rooms. Our dinner companions were my cousins Janice Sklar and David Sklar and friends Ann Meier, Pat Babcock and Jacki Beirne.
This beautiful restaurant was for more exclusive passengers:
Breakfast was our favorite meal. Everything you could want to eat for this meal was available. I had smoked salmon every day. My husband enjoyed the herring. You could have eggs made your way, omelets, or eggs benedict. Or hard boiled eggs were offered, albeit with shells on. There was French toast, pancakes, waffles, muffins and Danish, fruits, potatoes, breakfast meats, and more.
Lunches included light fare in the Eden and Spa cafes, a full international buffet at the Oceanview Cafe, pizza, or the Mast Grill with burgers and hot dogs. And the desserts! Here are some, but we’ll get to the rest later.
Day 1 Dinner at Cyprus
Braised Lamb Shank
Greek Custard (like Crème Brulee)
Apple Pie a la Mode
Day 2 Dinner at Cyprus
Braised Short Ribs
Sacher Torte with Vanilla Ice Cream

The lighting where we sat was dark and the service very slow. But I enjoyed my meal of melted Brie, seared duck breast, and apple crumble a la mode.

Turkey Parmesan with Spaghetti
Day 5 Dinner (Grand Cayman)
Beef Short Ribs
Chocolate Lava Cake
Day 6 Dinner (Second Dressy Night)

If this isn’t enough, these amazing desserts were on display at the lunch buffet near the end of the cruise. Cut up slices were served upon request.Celebrity Apex Review - The Food #foodie #cruising Click To Tweet

A doughnut bar? Cakes? Lord, I think I gained 10 pounds just reading this well-done and way-too-calorie-enticing post.
Yes, and now I am reaping the results of all that eating. Have to lose the weight I gained, and it isn’t easy.
